Refs for UK-U of L include man who ejected Cal

According to notes prepared for the media by the University of Louisville, Mike Stuart is one of the referees assigned to the Kentucky-Louisville game on Friday.

Stuart was the referee who slapped two technical fouls on Calipari during UK’s game against Mississippi Valley State.

Other referees assigned to the UK-U of L game are Jim Burr and Michael Stephens.

Stuart and Stephens worked Kentucky’s game at Mississippi State last season. That was the game that saw 10 fouls called against Mississippi State and none against UK in the final eight minutes (the last three minutes of the second half and five minutes of overtime). During that time, UK rallied to a victory.

Who hires these guys? Is this Pitino’s revenge? Stuart was way over the top but legally in the right. I think Cal may have needed a bathroom break!
